What is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry is the use of medication to create a relaxed, easy state for dental procedures. It ranges from minimal sedation- where you’re at ease yet still fully awake, to general anesthesia- when you’re completely unconscious. Dr. Siddiqui is trained and certified to offer sedation options and tailor them to your needs.

Types of Sedation Dentistry

There are three main types of sedation dentistry.

  • Inhalation sedation: Often known as “laughing gas”. It helps you relax during your procedure, and the effects wear off quickly.
  • Oral sedation: This involves taking a pill before your procedure. It’s stronger than nitrous oxide and will make you feel drowsy but you will remain awake.
  • IV sedation: This is the strongest form of sedation. You will remain conscious but will likely have little to no memory of the procedure.

The Benefits of Sedation Dentistry

The benefits of sedation dentistry extend beyond simply overcoming dental anxiety. It also:

  • Makes long procedures seem shorter.
  • Allows more work to be done in fewer appointments.
  • Minimizes the gag reflex.
  • Provides an option for those with a low pain threshold.

Is Sedation Dentistry Safe?

Yes. Sedation dentistry is safe when administered by trained professionals like Dr. Siddiqui. She will monitor your vital signs during the procedure to ensure your safety. However, like any medical procedure, there are risks. Dr. Siddiqui will discuss these with you before your procedure.
